Jacqueline Samuda, a finalist for Best Female Voice for the 2008 Voicey Awards, has been the voice for several major commercial campaigns, promoting retail, housing, health care, auto, utility and banking products among many others. A specialist in ADR (lip synching), she has replaced the voices of models and actresses in TV ads and dramatic programming. She has worked extensively on the web, for example as the client care/tutorial voice for a major bank's website, and the instructional website voice for another banks' employees. As a regular voice for a telecomm company for three years, she is very comfortable with IVR and on hold messaging, and has even been the voice "inside" greeting cards sent by the American Medical Association to doctors!

Although specializing in voice-over work, she has years of experience playing various characters in mulitple radio drama series and also performs in television and film productions, and has been an on-air host in industrials.
